Coolpad has been off to a strong start in India with the Dazen 1 getting fair amount of attention. The smartphone scores similar to the Yu Yuphoria in terms of providing value for money. Coolpad has just made the deal sweeter by reducing the price of the Dazen 1 by Rs 1,000. The Dazen 1 will now cost Rs. 5,999 instead of Rs. 6,999.
It packs a Snapdragon 410 chipset, which makes it the cheapest handset in the market to come with such processor. As a matter of fact, the Dazen 1 comes with everything the Yuphoria comes with at a price Rs 1,000 less. And since Yuphoria happens to be a benchmark in the affordable smartphones segment, the only way the Dazen 1 could take charge is by matching its specs and undercutting the price.
The price drop came as a welcome surprise for the ones who had registered for the flash sale, which was held earlier today. The company is celebrating the sale of 5 million smartphones globally and wants to share the happiness with its customers.
